MOST SPORTSMANLIKE PLAYER: Heather Richards, Mount Allison Mounties

This season's Atlantic University Sport most sportsmanlike player is Heather Richards of the Mount Allison Mounties.

This award recognizes an individual who maintains the standards of fair play and treats those around her with respect at all times.

Richards, a fourth-year Bachelor of Chemistry student from St. Anthony, N.L., appeared in 27 regular season games this year for the Mounties.

The five-foot-four forward finished the season with 11 points, including three goals and eight assists. Through the entirety of the regular season, she took just four penalty minutes.

Richards becomes the third player from Mount Allison to be recognized with this award. Courtney King last earned the honour in the 2013-14 season. Ashlynn Somers earned the honour in back-to-back seasons in 2011-12 and 2012-13.
